SACRED JOURNEY SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS BEGINS NEW STUDY ON MARCH 10:  How many animals were taken on Noah’s Ark? Who cut Sampson’s hair? How did David kill Goliath? We think we know the answers to these questions because we learned them in our childhood, but the real answers might just surprise you. Join the Sacred Journey Sunday School class beginning Sunday, March 10 at 9:15am for “Fake News: The Lessons You Learned Incorrectly in Sunday School” as we revisit Old Testament favorites, comparing what we think we remember from our childhood to what the Bible actually says. The class meets in Room 2 from 9:15-10:15 each Sunday morning. Discussion will be led by Anne Brown.
